You know, some of these new-fangled houses have extra large showers as well, with multiple showerheads.

As to the gang showers. Man, you people make me feel SO OLD and I'm only 53...but we had group showers, no dividers, from 7th grade on, and that included three years living in college dorms.

My family also had a hot tub and we regularly got naked in that - everyone. Man, ski weekends with the college girlfriends was amusing sometimes.

I don't have a lot of body modesty at this point.

Obligatory? (For some farkettes, I mean to say...)

Probably NSFW, especially if whomever looking over your shoulder doesn't notice they are wearing towels...

Americans are too obsessed with sex and nudity. Just because people are naked together doesn't mean sex is, or will be going on. It doesn't have to be sick and dirty. Sometimes it's just people who happen to not be wearing clothes at the same time.

In the last few years in Abby there have been letters that stated "my son showers with his 5 year old son" and "my husband goes into the bathroom and shaves while our daughter is showering in the morning before school". OMG whatever should I do. Thing is, if you have evidence the adult is doing something sexual with the child, certainly say something. But if it's just being naked in the same place at the same time. Chill out. If we were less hung up about our bodies, just think what we could do?

As far as the teen boys being naked with each other and all. Who cares.

FirstNationalBastard: kvinesknows: Shazam999: jabelar: There is a difference between choosing to do it and having to do it. If you need a quick shower after a game or between classes and don't want to wait and have only an open shower available, then obviously that is what you do. However, for example at my gym there are guys that will go into the sink area and dry their hair using the hand dryers and do this while naked. At that point it is a very weird choice as it is an extended period of unnecessary nudity in close quarters including being bent over to get their head under the dryer.

I'll shower in open shower too when necessary, but I going out of your way to hang out in an open shower is definitely suspect.

I take off all my clothes, use the scale naked, shave naked, use the toilet naked...


what do you (gulp) umm.. shave naked?

Only the balls. You have to tweeze the hairs off the shaft.

Real men use straight razors on the shaft.
